Head of the Ukrainian delegation at the Trilateral Contact Group Leonid Kravchuk explained why he participated in the airway of the Russian TV channel when leader of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushylin was invited as 1+1 TV channel reported.
Commenting on his participation, Kravchuk said the next:
“It is not about who are you talking with, the issue is what you are saying…I did not communicate with Pushylin. I asked him a question that is principal for me: do they want to build there, in uncontrolled Donbas some national Russian state? Then we have nothing to talk about. Or they want to build and agree with us about the integration of the regions in Ukraine”.
As we reported, Leonid Kravchuk participated in the airway of the Russian TV channel.
Leader of the militants Denis Pushylin joined the broadcasting and Kravchuk had a discussion with him. They argued about the ‘Russian Donbas’ narrative.

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba responded to the last talk of Kravchuk and Pushylin. According to Kuleba, the historical status of Kravchuk, allows him to do it.
